2014 showed that the Packers offense is, frankly, a juggernaut. Two rookies that made a difference at positions where that is difficult to do (wide receiver and tight end) in this league will now be coming back after a season full of experiences, good and bad. This experience, combined with the veteran presence of Pro-Bowler Jordy Nelson and the ever-dangerous Randall Cobb will give defenses fits in 2015. Add to that the up-and-coming Jeff Janis and a healthy Jared Abbrederis and the Packers receiver corps will force defenses to “pick their poison”. We will highlight all these guys in successive…
